I switched schools, and my first friends were girls that each had a various disability. That didn't matter, we were just friends.
We played together at recess, carpooled to dance, and all liked the color purple.
Growing up with them, they made an impact on my life that no one else could.
80% of adults with disabilities are unemployed. This isn't okay.
During my freshman year in college, I wanted to change this.
Today, I am proud to be a co-founder of 321 Coffee, a coffee shop and roaster that employs over 50 adults with disabilities.
The best part? The girls I met in 3rd grade now all work at 321 Coffee.
